On Hispanics and the Precinct Convention/Delegates in Texas This Year

2 March 2008 at 2:57:37 PM

Article from the IHT points out, again, that the reason that Latinos will not have as much of a say in delegates in the Texas primary caucus aka precinct convention is that half of them didn't vote for Democrat Chris Bell in the last primary election and half of them voted for Bush instead of Kerry in the 2004 election. Now, as I've said before, the precinct conventions are set up to *reward* counties and precincts that get out the vote for DEMOCRATIC candidates, why in the world SHOULD anyone, regardless of race, think they should get more delegates for the DEMOCRATIC party when they didn't make sure their fellow Democrats supported the party?

Instead of BUSH!!!

Election day polls in Texas from four years ago show blacks gave Kerry 83 percent of their votes in 2004, to 17 percent for Bush. Two years later, Bell claimed 63 percent black support in losing a four-way race to Republican Gov. Rick Perry.

By contrast, Kerry split the Hispanic votes with Bush, 50-49. Bell got less than that, 41 percent.

As a result, some state Senate districts with heavy Hispanic populations, including areas around Brownsville and Corpus Christi, have relatively few delegates at stake in this year's presidential primary.

That is unwelcome news for Clinton, who has won strong support from Hispanic voters in other states like California.
